Palm Beach Gardens, FL, October 30, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- For its ongoing dedication to deliver quality healthcare to some 350,000 beneficiaries and commitment toward strengthening the provision of medical services in Saudi Arabia, Johns Hopkins Aramco was presented a Global Insurance Leadership Award, the Medical Tourism Association® announced today.
“Aging populations and regulatory reform requiring the purchase of coverage have made health insurance the second fastest growing sector among Gulf Cooperative Council nations,” said Renée-Marie Stephano, president of the Medical Tourism Association®, at an awards ceremony during the 8th World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress, 2015, in Orlando, Fla. “The partnership between Johns Hopkins and Saudi Aramco continues to deliver high-quality healthcare to Saudi Aramco’s employees and their families and access to new lines of treatment, and new and enhanced specialties and subspecialties.”
Johns Hopkins Aramco Healthcare, a first-of-its-kind joint venture between Saudi Aramco, a world leader in energy, and Johns Hopkins Medicine, a leading academic medical institution in the United States, was established in 2014. Since then, the partnership has provided some of the finest healthcare facilities in the Middle East including a full-service Joint Commission International-accredited hospital in Dhahran that offers a full range of experienced, highly qualified physicians, specialists, dentists, nurses to ensure that Saudi nationals, expatriates and medical tourism patients are provided with a continuum of care while in the Kingdom.
The World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress accepts nominations to honor leadership, innovation, education, service and top facilities and destinations in the care and treatment of both international- and domestic-traveling patients.
Stakeholders who make up the billion-dollar medical tourism industry are encouraged to forward news of tremendous performances that recognize customer-focused care, international quality and standards, patient safety and satisfaction, effective leadership and state-of-the-art technology within the calendar year 2015-2016.
